states became a global power and i'm thinking back to the monroe doctrine about the united states and our sphere of influence, you are asking about strategic interest in rebuilding haiti. i do think that there is interest on the part of the united states strategically to engage haiti and make sure that this epic human catastrophe resolves itself, and this is going to take a very long time, but look, the united states was the first one to announce humanitarian help. we're always the biggest contributor when natural disasters happen in the world. no other country on the face of the earth in the history of the world does more to help people in situations like this than the united states of america. we always deliver. the question is, how best to do this? and when you look back since 1992, since the clintons were in office, what you've seen is a dedication of $3 billion from the united states going into haiti. it is still incredibly poor despite all of this effort on the part of the united states and other nations. in fact, haiti has the greatest number of nongovernmental organizations, ngos,

the rhetoric. >> do you think, mr. murray, that barack obama, the president of the united states, his being in boston, him being up there on the stump, is that going to help? is that really going to wake up those who might think, wait a minute, we've got to go vote on news. >> i think it does. it brings attention to how important this race is. and what is at stake. literally the agenda of the president. you showed senator kennedy and he's someone who is strong in his beliefs and fought for it. but he also was able to reach out to the no child left behind and in certain areas. isn't it unfortunate that other americans haven't been able to offer that compromise that senator kennedy offered to former president george bush on issues of education and other types of things? we've got a republican minority that is really trying to obstruct the will of the voters and no one knows more about this than you do. where does the middle class and pushing all of the same rhetoric that dick cheney and george bush did for so many years? >> barack obama hasn't done anything to eliminate the middle class in ma

of the united states? >> greta: and the senator said what to you, sir? >> the senator said that he thought that it was constitutional. that the only reservation he had was the individual mandate that's in the bill. he said that would probably have to go to the supreme court. but he believed that the supreme court would approve it as being constitutional. >> greta: about how many people were present at this town hall meeting? >> by my guess around 280. there's 240 seats in the hall plus roughly 40 people standing either by the walls or sitting in the aisles. all the seats were filled. >> greta: it is considered a conservative area do you consider yourself republican, democrat, independent? >> i'm an active member of the republican party of waukesha county. >> greta: what percentage in the room were republicans and what percentage were democrats? >> i have no idea, but i do know that someone else took a straw poll of how many people favored this piece of legislation and how many were opposed. there were exactly 12 people in favor of it and everyone else opposed. so that would be roughly 90%
a republican when it reelected ed brook to the united states stat in 1972 and the last time it voted for a republican in an open race was 1966. barack obama carried the state by six points. -- 26 points, excuse me, two years ago and i suspect that we may see brown get elected by three or five or six points. >> bill: what are you basing your prediction on? >> just looking at all of the polls. i'm a skill skeptical of insider advantage at 9 points. all the polls are moving in brown's direction and seems to be a consensus of four or five or six points but that is going to close up tomorrow. you touched son omaha ban on se reasons earlier. he is mingling with the people. she is an elitist. the last minute special interest deals have been stuffed in the held pill. is a bigger and broader narrative which is the people of massachusetts have seen all of the spending and deficit and all of the talk coming out of washington and are reacting in a highly negative fashion. not just one issue. it is a multiplicity of issues and the manner in which the administration and the congress have dealt wit
calamity occurs. in an attempt to get at that last one, the eyes of the world turn to the united states where president obama spoke again today. >> the entire world stands with the government and the people of haiti, for in haiti's devastation we all see the common humanity that we share. gwen: so what is the scope of the u.s. public and private response so far? helene? >> well, this has been -- the scale of this disaster has been so huge and right on america's doorstep that for the obama administration, their response had to be huge. i mean, when you're talking about 50,000, 100,000 people killed, no matter where this had happened in the world, the united states would have responded. but when you're talking about somewhere that's right on our doorstep, the response had to be huge. i think for president obama, this is the first full-scale catastrophe, humanitarian type disaster of his presidency. he was determined from the start that he was going to be, you know, right up on top of it, within 30 minutes of him being informed on tuesday about the earthquake, he already had convened his n

political story here in the united states right now. let's show you the results of this election as we have them right now. almost 100% of the precincts counted, 96%. scott brown, the republican with 52%, martha coakley, the state attorney general, 47%. more than 100,000 vote margin right there. a significant win for scott brown. let's go to john king. he's over at scott brown's headquarters where there are a lot of happy people right now. set the scene for us, john. i assume we're getting ready to hear from the winner of this race. >> reporter: we are waiting to hear from scott brown, a state senator, wolf, who will soon become a republican united states senator from massachusetts, for the first time in 30 years. and scott brown will take a seat held by the liberal ted kennedy for nearly 50 years. that, in itself, a big message from the people of massachusetts tonight. not only to their own leadership here, but to the president of the united states and to the national democratic party. scott brown in a state that barack obama won 14 months ago by 26 points. scott brown ran against the obam

the disaster zone to the united states. plus, as rescue crews pull more victims from the rubble, food and water remain in short supply. even as president obama offers prayers for haitian victims today, he's keeping an eye on u.s. politics. why a trip to massachusetts could make a difference between getting his health care reform passed or watching it fail. hello, you are watching hln news and views. i'm melissa long. there is a top official leading the u.s. relief efforts in haiti saying issues of violence are hurting rescue attempts to help the victims. while the streets have been largely calm, violence is increasing. about 1,000 u.s. troops are in haiti and about 3,000 others are working from ships. more than 12,000 u.s. forces are expected to be there tomorrow. they are working with local police force and they're beginning to work with security. violence in haiti will continue long after the story fades from the headlines. president obama speaks about how faith gets people through these tough times. >> it's faith that keeps me calm. it's faith that gives me peace. the same faith that leads a
